Internal Server Error: 535 5.7.8 Error: authentication failed: UGFzc3dvcmQ6

If I try to send a requested stock movement I get the error:

Internal server error.
535 5.7.8 Error: authentication failed: UGFzc3dvcmQ6

This looks like an SMTP error, so disable email.

grails.mail.enabled = false

If I disable this will the system still send out emails or not? Otherwise I have to look why smtp isn’t working anymore.

Problem found, someone chanced the smtp pass

Yeah that’s what I was going to suggest next. Glad you figured it out. We should probably catch that exception and rethrow it as a checked exception to be more instructive (“Looks like your SMTP settings are off”) about where the issue occurs. Also, I was under the impression that we had changed the way email notifications work so they do not block the application from continuing when email errors occur. I’ll investigate that.

@Artur Walkowiak @Matthew Pearson Do you remember making a change like that in a recent release?
